Baking soda does a great job of cleaning a stainless steel sink. Just sprinkle it in the sink and clean with a sponge then rinse.
Try cleaning your sink with a paste of baking soda and water. You can then rinse the sink with vinegar, which will bubble and fizz. Vinegar naturally disinfects while helping remove hard water stains from your stainless steel sink. Once your sink is clean and dry, you can easily add an extra shine.
Our sink is older than the time we have lived here which is 49 years. It is a double sink and I clean it with comet (or whatever cleaner I have on hand)
I use Dawn dish liquid and a green kitchen scrubby.
If it’s not coming clean with the above methods, do you have rust deposits or water deposits or?
0000 steel wool with a lot of soap in it will buff away any s/s rust stains, scrub with the direction of the grain.
I use a single edge razor blade to gently shave the water deposits in places that I can get to, like the back of the faucet base.
Bar Keepers Friend does a great job!
A couple of people mentioned baking soda but not adding hydrogen peroxide. Make a paste of the two and it will disinfect as well as clean. If you have scaling build up, white cleaning vinegar soaked on a paper towel or rag left on the area will loosen.
Once you have gotten completely clean, rubbing alcohol will make it shine or a dab of vegetable oil rubbed in will bring it back to life.
Hi Brenda: Check this hometalk site: https://www.hometalk.com/11000383/how-to-make-your-stainless-steel-sink-shine. Remember to go with the grain of the steel and not against it or in a circular motion.
Hi Brenda - This is the easiest way to clean stainless steel appliances. It's literally so easy, you will wonder if it's too good to be true, but it does work! Hope this helps! Hugs, Holly
